Mark Kanzer

Boyer reviews the literature on sculpture produced by psychotic persons and describes the relationship between such art and the life history of a woman subject to depressions. Her subjects and her associations provide insight into her mental state and her problems. 'Lot's wife', for example, reflects a reluctance to go forward; 'Cassandra' foresees future sorrow; the breasts of 'Diana' are concave and mutilated. Work was sometimes impulsively created or as impulsively destroyed—notably, the head of the therapist. The article is abundantly illustrated.
